A query using like predicate causes ORA-1560.
This is caused when concatinating bind bariables including more than 22 multibyte characters and a character '%'.
SQL> var dname varchar2(64 char)
SQL> exec :dname :='<Multibyte character>....';
SQL> SELECT count(*) FROM scott.emp WHERE ename LIKE :dname || '%' ;
SELECT count(*) FROM scott.emp WHERE ename LIKE :dname || '%'
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01560: LIKE pattern contains partial or illegal character
(In this case, multibyte charcters set into a bind variable before executing a query)
